Whales and Seals

Whales:
The types of whales we most frequently see are Pilot, Finback, Minke and Humpback. Occasionally we also see Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins, Basking Sharks and shy Harbor Porpoises. Come hear these magnificent creatures sing along with our hydrophone!

Since 1994, our success rate has been one of the best in the world!


Seals and Birds:
Gray and harbor Seals are often hauled out on secluded rocky outcrops. Other common residents of our rugged shore are: Bald Eagles, Black Guillemots, Northern Gannets, Double Crested Cormorants, Common Mergansers, Moose and Black Bears.

 


Scenery:
The Highland coast scenery is breathtaking and wild, with spectacular rock and cliff formations, mysterious sea caves, cascading waterfalls, abandoned pioneer settlements, a contemporary Tibetan Buddhist monastery, and traditional maritime fisherman at work.
